Not sure if this has been answered, but I have been having a heck of a time trying to find information regarding the OSD/GUI and the volume adjustment.

Does anyone know, especially those who already have the HT-RC260, if the volume adjustment is displayed on your main display (via HDMI out)? I have an older Denon that shows the volume adjustment on the main screen via it's GUI interface so that I don't have to guess how much I've adjusted the volume.

Any input would be appreciated. Would go a long way in determining whether to choose this receiver over a possible denon avr-1912 or a more expensive HT-RC360 or the TX-NR609.

Thanks.

The Denon 1912 will for sure and also uses the more advanced version of Audyssey MultEQ which EQ's the sub ... the RC260 only uses 2EQ with no sub EQ.

I can say my ht-rc180 displays volume adjustments on screen. I tested bypassing the video chip with the return/VCR button trick. 1. I couldn't see any difference in VQ 2. I couldn't tell how high the volume was set.
While i only demoed a few brands, I love this receiver. But I wish it handled digital audio for zones... Though I am not sure this is available on the latest receivers since I haven't looked lately...
Isn't there a 260 thread? I would ask there...

Thank you both for your input. Looks like choosing which onkyo for my room will be a toss-up between the RC260, RC360 and the NR609.
